This largely overlooked sci-fi/fantasy is a masterpiece of visual craftsmanship. Although it's hard to stop gawking at the detail in the fabric of the little rag dolls that populate the movie, one scene that offers extra treats visually is Chapter 11, which depicts the attack of a flying beast that looks like a cross between a pterodactyl and Edward Scissorhands. The sound is also pretty amazing, too, thanks to the frequent discharge of all sorts of horrific weaponry.
